I was just searching for my profiles on stackoverflow on Google, and I have one which I use a lot, but then I found another which was Reputation 1, which was an account created logging in with Facebook, then I connected them and the Reputation section it is showing: You have no recent reputation changes, of course my points aren't gone, but the Reputation section shouldn't change like that. I'll reproduce the steps I had.

  • I have a Facebook account: [email protected]
  • I have a Google account: [email protected]
  • I logged in to Stackoverflow (and created account) with the Google account.
  • I logged in to Stackoverflow (and created account) with the Facebook account.
  • Now I have two Stackoverflow accounts.
  • I started using Stackoverflow with the Google account.
  • The Facebook account remained with Reputation 1.
  • I changed my Facebook email to [email protected].
  • Now when I try to log in to Stackoverflow with Facebook, it connected my two accounts, deleting the account with Reputation 1, and even updating my Stackoverflow picture. The reputation Section is showing You have no recent reputation changes, event though I had activity yesterday.

This isn't affecting me, just that that section is showing no events on my reputation, but my reputation remains the same, and I wonder, when this happens, it always deletes the account with less points? or it was just because my second account wasn't being used?

Thank you.

  • If I'm reading your account history correctly, it appears that a system merge occurred. This can happen as a result of you personally requesting a merge, or sometimes the system itself will merge accounts if it detects a duplicate one.

  • The system did it.

  • Can you link to where this is happening? I don't see any of your users with an issue. Jul 1, 2013 at 23:40
  • The Reputation section view changed after I made an activity, so it is not showing errors anymore. Could someone clarify what is the procedure to delete an account after linking?
